Let the light shine in

We CAN perceive UV light: "...An illustration of how ultraviolet appears is provided by the Impressionist painter Claude Monet. Following cataract surgery in 1923, his colour palette changed significantly; after the operation he painted water lilies with more blue than before. This may be because after lens removal he could see ultraviolet light, which would have given a blue cast to the world. "

Another jewlery box conversion. Want to be really creative and frivolous with this project. Any small items such as keys, watch parts, little instruments, vials, old photographers. Animal parts like claws and teeth, bones, skulls, scraps of fur etc that can be put in a curio box.
